Eric Wayne McClure

"Life is mostly froth and bubble. Two things stand like stone. Kindness in another's struggles and courage in your own."
And so was the life of our beloved Eric Wayne McClure, age 42, who passed away on Sunday, May 2, 2021, swiftly and courageously into the waiting arms of his Lord and Savior, the Author and Finisher of his faith.

He is also survived by the mother of his children, Miranda McClure, and the delights of his life, his seven precious princesses for whom he would have hung the moon and the stars; Mabreigh, Maryleigh, Mirabella, Merritt, Myanna, Meraline, and Melania.
Also, left to cherish his memory are uncles, Ed McClure (Lee), Jim McClure, Larry McClure (Ginny), Teddy McClure (Sarah), and Michael McClure; aunt, Betsy Rash (Roy); honorary "grandmother", Nina Breedlove, many cousins and a host of friends.
